THE DEAD BELOVED IS WAITING
    A Coca-Cola can island. The woman takes an empty lipstick out of her pocket. She tries to take some out with her finger. She can’t. She takes a scrambled Coca-Cola can that she is sitting on and she tries to break the opener. It falls into the can. She can’t manage to take it out. She tries again.

    THE WOMAN
    I want my shoe.
    THE MAN
    I’ll buy you new shoes. With modern high hills. Would you like that? Just don’t do that again.
    THE WOMAN
    I’m going to find my shoe.
    THE MAN
    Stay. I’ll go. (Pause. He is preparing to jump.) I’ll be right back. (He leaves. She is trying to find something in the man’s bag to take some lipstick out. She puts the lipstick on with a match. The man is coming back. There are wet green sea plants on his suit. In his hands he has a high hill shoe. He kneels to put it on her foot.
